There are many ways that information can be extracted online. Information that is shared about yourself online can allow you to be identified and tracked unknowingly and unwillingly.

Information through the use of credit cards and online shopping, to restaurant, hotel and event bookings. Even reviews left at restaurants can let people know of your approximate location.
